“It feels really, really humbling to be a part of something bigger than myself,” said teacher Caleb Armstrong. “It really means that I’m leaving a legacy and I can see the impact I’m having on students, and that feels really good.”

During the ceremony, the new teachers announced their schools and celebrated with family and friends.
